Animal control and construction workers in Southern California are being praised for getting a donkey out of a sinkhole. Riverside Animal Control Officer Christopher Peck says he was originally called to the scene last week thinking it was dog stuck in the hole.
The burro was able to leap out of the hole after Peck and a construction crew dug a trench and then a ramp. The animal appeared to be fine and was reunited with a nearby donkey pack. Peck did not reveal if the donkey belonged to someone or was feral.
